My ex husband Audley John Martin Ost born 1945 Suffolk....
his father.........Audley Desmond Ost (details in file )bn: c 1913 ish
his father.........Audley Alfred Ost born 1860's Ireland
his father.........John Ost. born ????????? approx1824 in Ireland. He married Elizabeth Browne in Achill in 1848 and they are buried on Achill Island.Almost sure he had a sister , Jane.
His father ........James Ost...HELP , ..can't find any info.for James or John.
I have lots of info re: Osts in Long Melford, Glemsford, Cavendish and other villages in Suffolk. These , strangely enough , are the forebears of my husband's MOTHER. For such an uncommon name it seems a coincidence to have the same name on both sides of the family. Can't find any connection between them------- the suffolk Osts were mostly
lowly village people , whereas the Irish side seem to have been more affluent.
If YOU know 'my' elusive John Ost , PLEASE reply , I'd be so grateful. Thanks in anticipation....Val Ost
